Too much concrete!

Happy Home
February 12, 2019
Hi Houzzers.

Just wanting to pick your brains.

We have spent the last few years extending the back and working on the inside of our 1965 post-war home. Now it’s time for the exterior!

I’m looking for some suggestions for what to do with our driveway and verandah surface. It’s the original concrete. Hardly any cracks but pretty discoloured. A power wash a few years back helped a bit but not great.

The garden usually looks more colourful...it’s just the end of a hot summer.

Don’t want to spend a heap on fixing up the concrete nor paint it (I’m worried that comes off with time and looks worse,) but I DO want something that looks fresher but that is sympathetic to the original look/style of the house. I am proud we haven’t rendered and “modernised” like so many others in the street have!

Suggestions welcome!

Thanks!
